Food is very good and service is super fast. You start off with fresh chips, salsa and bean dip. Great spot for a excellent Mexican lunch in Nampa.

I try this dish "Camarones mojo de ajo at just about every Mexican restaurant I visit. If it doesn't stand up to El Rodeo, I usually don't go back to try anything else. I know that's pretty biased on just one dish, but this is one garlic shrimp dish that so many other restaurants fail at and when I look... More

I had not eaten at El Rodeo for several years and was coaxed in to trying it again. I was pleasantly surprised. Very generous portions and very inexpensive.

I had never eaten here before. Went with a group from work. The portions were hearty. The flavor was full. Everyone really enjoyed the meal. And the price can't be beat! I recommend it for sure

The menu includes all the standard Mexican food choices, and they are all prepared well. As is usual at Mexican restaurants, don't order any form of steak unless you like it well done. The seating is typical of most diners with booths along the wall and a few tables in the middle. It is a relatively quiet place and they... More

I enjoy this place it has a few more authentic options than most local places. Prices are good, service is good, place is a bit stale, I mean outdated feeling.

Food is always good and consistent, but the service is not the best. Usually a wait for someone to acknowledge you and bring you chips and salsa. Look past the service as the food is worth it....

We have been eating here since 1995. It is still one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. My husband loves their chili verde. He tries it at other places and always says El Rodeo has the best. We especially like to go there for lunch. They have a good lunch menu that is reasonably priced. The service is always good and... More
